Hi everyone,
I didn't catch what Stephen asked Rob at the end of the video. Could you help me ?

Hello snickanicky!
As a joke, Steven asks Rob:
Have you ever had a better student than me?
And Rob replies:
Never, Steven.
This is an example of the present perfect they have just been discussing.
Hope that helps!

Thank you Jeremy Bee :D

.I want a script for this video.


I'm sorry, but we don't have the transcripts available for these videos. Remember, these language focus clips are like mini lessons, not listening exercises. If you understand what Rob is teaching and can do the exercises – then that's all you need! It's not comprehension, but language work.

Good luck!

I have a problem with second sentence in task 3. Why can´t I say: "I have never loved Miss Piggy"??? And how should I say that fact that I never loved something?
Thank you!

Hello Camo,
You are right - that exercise wasn't very clear. I've made some changes, so it should be better now. Try it again and hopefully you will understand better.
Thanks for your comment. If you find any other exercises with problems, please tell us!
